you just don't know how convincing, or how powerful the holy spirit can be in changing a person's heart. i think that's one of the best, or easiest selling points for the 40 days for life campaign, is there are so many of us that, you know, have had a change of heart, or maybe a change of heart to just investigate further. what is going on? when we hear 55 million babies have died since roe versus wade, there's a lot of people wanting to know, am i a part of this? and i think that complacency and not hearing the words immortal sin or that you're actually killing a life, people years ago would have said my daughter's having a baby, we'll figure out how it works, is different now. we stand in the gap when a grandmother-to-be who thinks she's too young hears her daughter is having a baby, that instead of being overwhelmed she sees there's people standing in the wingsides, pregnancy centers, adoption agencies, there's a lot of people. that's who we hope to be standing by when we say there's other information, other choices. we found out that won'
